Re: Awful situation

Maybe our demands are to high ? possibly Tate has to kept on the coaching staff and a new gaffer would want his own backroom staff. It is quite incredible that a club who got to the Championship Final last season can't attract a Manager and is getting turned down by assistants and Managers from a lo...

Re: Jody Morris

I find it laughable when fans quote JT's antics and Morris's drink driving history as Managers that should be nowhere near our club based on that !

Both have decent footballing credentials

Re: John Terry leaves Villa

Maybe the owners realise now we need a rebuild and need someone to lead that . i agree with our cash restraints i'd me surprised if we can afford JT. Saying that he has no managerial experience so his wage expectations maybe lower than we think

Re: Julian Winter

It maybe not Winter who has the final say .. if Winter values Grimes at £8M and a risk of no takers the owners might agree a £4M bid from Fulham to keep the revenue coming in. A good valid point about his contract with a year left, how many would be happy if he ran this down this season ?

Re: Grimes

There is every chance Fulham could bounce back but will Grimes be part of that success if they do !? We've been here before selling players to Fulham then find themselves on the fringes and sold on. But i guess £4M is very low risk for them ! For us the whole spine of the side has now gone so be int...

Re: Grimes

Signs of desperation again to get funds into the club.. £4M for Grimes is undervaluing him and to go to another Championship side shows his lack of ambition as a player.

Re: And so we move on but Cooper’s departure leaves questions

I suppose they probably reached a place where both parties felt things had come to a natural end. Cooper probably didn't think that he would improve on last season given the weaker squad. Better for him to leave on a high than sacked by Christmas with us in 15th place. From our perspective, better ...

We have enough about us to stay up unless we sell 3 of our assets in this window.

Re: John Eustace

Shows where we are as a club now .. very little ambition living off loans and journeymen but i get we need to cut our cloth .

Be interesting if Rangel is part of this as we could get some playing identity back and be entertained at least.
